[late] weekend wish list

Zara's online store has officially launched, and I can't stop shopping. Is anyone else having trouble exercising self-control?

chop it off

My hair is in desperate need of a cut. DESPERATE. Between my horrendous split ends and severely overgrown layers, I've had no choice but to pull it back into a messy bun every single day for the past month. And trust me, it's not a chic messy bun that you might see on Carrie Bradshaw or at NYFW. It's the kind of bun that you'd see on someone who just spent several hours at the gym and didn't have time to shower before going home. It's not cute. So I've been scouring magazines and the internet, trying to find a style that's suitable for my face shape and hair type, and I think this cut might be the winner. Ever since I stumbled across the photo above, I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. What do you guys think? Yay or nay?

Note: I know that it's extremely poor form to post an image without linking you to the original source, but I cannot for the life of me figure out where I grabbed this from. If anyone happens to know where I might have come across it, please let me know, and I'll update this post.

weekend wish list

The boy and I are moving to a new apartment in late October, and instead of focusing on practical tasks -- you know, like starting to pack up all my stuff -- I'm shopping.  WAY MORE FUN.  Here are a few items that I'd love to get for our new space:

1.  Limited Edition Gold POP Phone from Native Union to use with my iPhone and MacBook ($59.99)
2.  a stand for displaying my favorite statement necklaces (photograph from this post by Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere)
